Question about 1991 Nissan 300ZX
The problem I'm having is that when my car gets went it does not work. Meaning if it rains or even from the moisture over night will not let my car stay on. When I start the car after being wet it starts up but then starts the problem lol. It'll start cuttin in and out like it's trying to stay on but it can't and then eventually shuts off but all the electronics inside the car stay on.
Others have told me it's the ground wires and that I should check them for corrosion. I've looked over the engine bay on top and can't seem to find anything that looks corroded. I'm not very car savvy so I'm not sure exactly where they all are or what I'm really doing lol. I've looked at pictures of what grounding wires look like and tried looking for as many as I could but nothing looked that bad. I probably missed a bunch but I haven't any idea where they all are at if that even is the problem.
If anyone lives in WI and would be willing to check it out that would be great too but otherwise I don't know what I'm doing.
What you can do to diagnose this issue is - take an old spray bottle (some kind of house cleaning solution), clean it out really well (so nothing flammable is in it) and fill it with water. Then, pop the hood to your car, start the engine, and then squirt different parts of your engine until you squirt an engine part that causes your car to shut off... then you know that's the problem!
I had the same issue with my husband's car. We determined that it was the distributor cap, which we purchased at Auto Zone and replaced on our own for like $30.
